Thousands of women and men are now on their way for three days to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer.

Walkers gathered in Northbrook on Friday for the Susan G Komen Chicago 3-Day Walk in a little rain.

The 60-mile walk lasts through Sunday.

Participants raise at least $2,300 and walk an average of 20 miles a day, with 75 percent of the net proceeds support national programs.

The other 25 percent go to local programs.
